Apple should have an interesting month or so ahead.
Firstly they are scheduled to announce their financial results for the last quarter and with it the entire results for 2006 on the 20th of October.
Then theres the new intel core 2 duo MacBooks / pro’s that they have to release sometime in order to stay competitive with the other pc manufacturers, some of whom already have core 2 duo models out.
Finally, in the last few days it has been reported by a number of Apple rumour sites that Apple are close to releasing a widescreen touch video iPod. It would seem like the perfect time when you consider that the iPod’s fifth birthday is on the 23rd of October (in plenty of time for holiday shopping).
